Industry and science constitute a brand new area of research at the NMC. It aims to break away from traditional notions and dig deep into the scientific and technological aspects of traditional Chinese culture, including ideas and outcomes, based on the museum’s current and future collections, and to open up a new research field centered on important physical evidence of the Chinese nation’s endeavor in modern times towards industrial modernization. Going forward, we will actively collaborate with related organizations to recruit specialists in various relevant fields and move forward in the building of an “Industry and Science” exhibition hall.
